And I have another question. Are there any semester holidays in USA? When do they start? Thanks again.

"And I have another question. Are there any semester holidays in USA? When do they start? Thanks again."

LOL, what kind of holidays? We have day-length ones (Veteran's day, Labor Day, etc) where we only are off a single day, we have week-long holidays (mid-winter break, spring-break, winter-break), which can last anywhere from four days to two weeks. And we have, of course, summer break, which is typically about three months long.

"When do they start?"

Every school is different--some schools are even year-round, where their breaks are spit up into the schoolyear.

Summer breaks can differ also. I've been to schools which start in August and end in May, and I've also been to schools which have started in Semptember and ended in June.
